Pet Acupuncture

We are proud to offer veterinary acupuncture at Pet Care Clinic of the High Country. This therapy has been used in human medicine for centuries and has recently become an incredible practice for veterinary medicine. Our veterinarians have sought advanced training to certify them for acupuncture treatment, making this incredible service available to our patients.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is from a branch of Chinese medicine which utilizes tiny needles to stimulate areas on the body, sending signals through the nervous system to relieve pain and encourage healing. Some of the specific anatomical points that our veterinarians will stimulate include:

Relaxation point
Rejuvenating and soothing point
Points to help ease pain and improve mobility
